  • I still miss you and don't believe that you have gone

    Its already ben 6 months and it still feels like it all happened just yesterday.
    I still sprinkle pink glitter for you at your grave.
    Thankyou so much for looking after my sunglasses until Muzzy found them. I hunted everywhere for them, went to see you heaps as that was the last place I could remember having them, I cried for you and took them off.
    You will have your flash new headstone soon and you would have loved it so much Nat, its all shiney and pink and will have a bit of bling, Muzzy has okayed that for you.
    You would be so proud of your kids, they are both doing so well.
    We all look out for Muzz so you've got no worries there.
    I miss you Nat so much, you were taken too early for us all to handle.
    I will still glitter and bling with you every week,
    All my love, Sharon

  • It's taken a while

    It was one of the saddest pleasures of my life to get to Nat's funeral.
    Strangely enough, my memories of Nat weren't of pink and of the amount of people she knew.
    No, the memories I have of Nat are of her crazy driving in that wee brown escort, the way she just laughed when the lights in my cortina just died late on a frosty sunday night 20k's from Lawrence. We travelled many miles visiting Muzz and my various girlfriends, and I used to dread the times it was her turn to take her car. Honestly, her driving was so bad back then I wrote a song about it.
    My memories are of getting told off for leaving crumbs on the bench, those awesome Christmas letters, lengthy annual catchup calls and many laughs. I remember her inspirational trust and love for Muzz, and recall thinking 'gee, if only I could end up as happy as that' many many times.
    I remember how Muzz used to tease Nat incessantly, and how only sometimes she'd get the joke, which only served to make us all love her more.
    When I got back from the funeral, I tried to rack my mind for 'pink' memories of Nat, but couldn't. I felt a bit odd about that as I drove, then turned down a street near home and it was ALIVE with the most amazing pink blossoms you've ever seen!
    Thank you Nat, now I have a pink memory like everyone else.
    She made me feel unique, and us all uniquely good about ourselves.
    We were lucky to have her as long as we did.
    The year of firsts will pass soon enough, Muzz.
    We'll miss her forever.

  • I've remembered

    Dear Nat,it's your 43rd birthday today, Christmas Day. I hope that where ever you are you are happy and looking down on your family and friends who miss you tremendously.
    Also, thinking of Muzz, Ashleigh and Matt today as they have Christmas Day without their much loved wife and mother.

    With love,

    Kerry x

  • an awesome lady

    Although we didn't know Natalie that well, what we did know was super! She dealt with our insurance and would ring or see us and always be so cheerful and friendly as so many have stated - she was really a friend to all and made everyone feel special by being a very special person herself!
    She will be missed around our small town but never ever forgotten - she truely was one in a million!
